Forum: opensource_audio Subject: Metadata entry problems again...ping the correct people?

On task #86913 (http://www.archive.org/audio/audio-details-db.php?collectionid=nfn-2005-01-29&collection=opensource_audio) is waiting for me to enter metadata but I have done so.

From reading other threads, I understand the contribution engine is having problems. I don't know who the right people are to ask about this issue, so I thought I'd post here.

Thanks.

I don't see this item in the CE, so perhaps the issue worked itself out. To answer your question more generally, when you do enter in metadata there is a lag because you enter it in a web form on one of our web servers and it must then be copied by a daemon over to the upload server where you put the data. Additionally, the CE waits 10 minutes after receiving the data before it starts processing so that if you hit 'submit' right as you realize you misspelled Grateful it's ok.

If you have problems and need to contact someone directly (i.e. not in the forums) you can reach us at info at [replaced @ -Astrid] archive.org.
